The STOREP Executive Commitee fully endorses the ESHET statement: we hope that every effort will be made to find a diplomatic solution preventing further violence.

The ESHET executive committee condemns the violence and bloodshed committed by the Russian army in Ukraine. The line separating good and evil does not pass between the people on either side of the Russian-Ukrainian border, or between peoples in the east and west of Europe. It lies between those who long for dialogue and friendship and those who choose violence to achieve their goals.

On behalf of the ESHET executive committee,

André Lapidus, past ESHET president
Richard van den Berg, current ESHET president
Vladimir Avtonomov, future ESHET president
